Now Is The Time To Visit Thrift Shops

Due to the popularity of a Netflix series, thrift stores are seeing massive donations.

If you haven't seen Marie Kondo's "Tidying Up" you have probably heard about it from a friend.

In the show, Marie Kondo teaches her KonMari method of tidying up your home, and in the process your relationships and your life. It's all about keeping the items that "spark joy" in your life.

Twenty minutes into the first episode I found myself purging my closet and refolding the clothes I decided to keep. The next day, my dresser drawers and the following day the linen closet.

Believe it or not, I feel less stressed and "lighter" by getting rid of the clutter around my home.

This broke down to three bags of trash and 4 bags of clothes/linens heading to Goodwill.

Thrift stores and charitable agencies have been flooded with donations since the show's New Years Day Netflix premiere.

One person's trash is another person's treasure.
